TOPIC: Computer History -- Java
In January 1991, the Stealth Project got underway at Sun Microsystems. The goal of Stealth was to develop "smart" consumer electronic devices that can be centrally controlled and programmed from a handheld remote control device. After a couple of years of moderate success, the project's programming language was renamed Java, and its focus was directed toward the emerging World Wide Web. Commercial introduction of Java in 1995 marked a new era in the history of the web.
